~~ Of that BS&T/Chicago slew of horn bands that got so huge in the early 1970s, Ambergris is one of the least known. But one of the best. Jerry Wiese was in this band, and he had also been in the Al Kooper BS&T on Child Is Father to the Man. The album is not quite as inventive, but is filled to the brim with blues, jazz, R&B, and even some James Brownisms that actually work super. This is thick, excellent funky horn rock. Music that stays on rock proper!
